Idaho is loaded with enough thrilling outdoor adventures and beautiful scenery to keep you busy year round. Active people are always on the move no matter what season it is, and sometimes it feels like there just isn’t enough time in the day to check everything off of the list. If you’ve ever tried scheduling a doctor’s appointment between work, the gym, and everyday chores, then you know what I’m talking about.

I sat down with a bunch of go-getters with hectic schedules to talk about their everyday to-do lists. They all had one thing in common. Every single one of them scheduled in a little bit of “me time.” The common theme that rang true was that they needed time away to be 100% for the rest of their daily lives.

So dear fellow workaholic, if you are in need of some restorative ‘me time’, check out these seven stress-free spas that will rejuvenate your mind and body.
